Intimate Nuptials in Napa Valley

I should probably just go ahead and apologize to the groom behind this next wedding. Because while he is incredibly handsome and I’m sure quite lovely, I can’t take my eyes off his bride. Her stunning smile, her relaxed boho chic vibe, her glow that every bride sort of craves. All captured perfectly by Caroline Yoon. And there is so much more of her – and their lovely wedding – right here in the gallery.

From Caroline Yoon Fine Art PhotographyStephanie and Brian’s intimate and elegant wedding was nothing short of perfection. They were wed surrounded by their closest friends and family at a private residence in Napa Valley, California. Their wedding day was truly a collaboration of talented friends and family who offered up their talents for the florals, the wedding cake, and many other thoughtful details. It was a beautiful, honest, and heartfelt wedding, and I feel special to have been a part of it.

Garden Ranch Malibu Wedding

When I heard this bride’s wedding design was inspired the Twilight wedding scene, I raced to Youtube and to watch it for myself (with a full movie viewing following that night, obviously.) And thanks to the beautiful work of Grace Song of Charis Events & DesignThe Butter End Cakery and Butterfly Floral, I’d say “mission accomplished.” See every moment in the gallery from AndySeo Studio.

From the Bride.. It was a typical late night after work on 2010 when I first met Zoo, now my husband. I was working as a chef at London West Hollywood hotel, and after cooking for exhausting 10 hours, my co-worker and I could not help the late night munchies. Usually, this late night munchies are evil, but I say this one was the opposite since it led me to meet my husband, who was a good friend of my co-worker and was fighting the munchies just like us! My co-worker called Zoo out and we ended up having drinks/snacks together. In fact, nothing happened that night. I only remember the meal was just good and Zoo was wearing a red beanie, which I was like, ‘what the…’. No one, even my co-worker, this night would be the beginning of everything. We didn’t know why, but we found we hung out each other more often since that accidental, but destined night.

Our love started growing somewhere in our heart.I became his fiance on the night of Christmas eve. He decorated his room with an arch and light balls, and kneeled down with a little tears. Sure, he recorded everything with his ‘hidden’ video camcorder. We had about a year and a half engagement to have enough time for the one and only wedding prep!

I am a huge fan of Disney since I was a child, so I always wanted to have my wedding like the ones in fairytales. One day, I got to see the movie, ‘Twilight’ wedding scenes, and that was it! Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA was a just perfect outdoor venue with rustic barn aura and so much trees and plants. Especially, we loved and picked Ranch House since it also gave us much room to decorate to my exactly wanted theme.

Our wedding planner, Grace Song (CEO of Charis event & Design), there is no way our wedding could have been the spectacular day it was without her. It is not just the organization, it is the consultation and conversations prior that relieved my stress and helped me prepare for the day. She had ideas that elevated mine. We need someone like Grace to rein it all in, and figure out the details that your brain could not comprehend. She is the expert, and it shows. Nothing seems to faze her. We are truly blessed to have her as our coordinator for our wedding. And our photographer, Andy Seo Photography, one of the best decision we made for our wedding.We cannot say enough great things about Andy and his photography team. 

Many thanks to other vendors that we had for our wedding, and also embrace every minutes of your special day because it goes by unbelievably quickly. If you hire great people, they will make your day is so special and that you get to enjoy every single moment.
